Description of problem:
When trying to create a cut down build, it is handy to be able to
provide a package list in the kicstart with the --ignoredeps
parameter.  The documentation states that this will install the
packages listed without installing dependencies.  Currently a cut down
package list of RPMS ends up installing more packages that those lists
-- despite the system used to generate this list had not missing deps. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use a defined package list in the kickstart script
2. Install machine with the kickstart.
3. Extra packages get installed!
